PC Gaming Alliance Rolls Out New Website

February 10, 2009 -

The PC Gaming Alliance, which welcomed publisher Capcom to its ranks last week, has unveiled a new website.

The updated PCGA home page is definitely an improvement over the original. Randy Stude, PCGA president, commented on the transition: 

Visitors... will see that the PCGA is the place that PC Gaming companies of all types can come together to collaborate to help solve problems that plague our industry. Our membership remains steadfast in the belief that this is vital to ensuring the continued growth and health of PC Gaming globally.

GP: Now if they'd just update their blog once in a while...

Re: PC Gaming Alliance Rolls Out New Website

Anything that can improve the status of PC gaming I'm fully in support of. PC gaming has been sucking lately thanks to the big companies pulling back on resources. I feel jipped. My paid big money for my rig, and honestly its way different than my xbox 360. I guess the piracy bug has really been the driving force behind pc gaming and suckage. Thats too bad. I hope the free pc game model works with Ea's battlefield heroes. Either that or Starcraft will bring PC gaming back to the forefront.

The new design is nice. Now about the DRM assfuckery and key locking...

I see that the PCGA still has their priorities straight. Things they do nothing about:

- Over the top DRMs

- Over the top prices

- Bad ports

- Forced console exclusives

- Bad control of sales (not taking most online sales into account)

Of course, half of their members are PC's worst offenders: Microsoft (monopoly, buying exclusives for xbox, forcing delays in PC release dates, abysmal OS support, PC market rupture with DX9 & DX10...), Intel (integrated graphics chips), Epic (hates PC, why are they even in the PCGA?), ATI  & nVidia (price fixing), etc.

And what do they do?

- A new website

- (every two months, from any member at random) EVERYTHING IS BECAUSE OF PIRACY!!!! PIRACY IS BAD!!!! PIRACY IS KILLING PC!!!!

With these friends, who wants enemies?.

<looks at website, most notably member companies>

I thought the CEO of EPIC said they weren't developing for PC after their UT3 debacle that they blamed on piracy. Doesn't sound like someone I want promoting PC gaming.

Re: PC Gaming Alliance Rolls Out New Website

How about tell devs not to lock keys and ensure all PC games are full customizable control wise..... the port and dumb mentality of modern gaming is making the console version more configurable than the PC version...

InfophileOn Goth's linked article: Historically speaking, there may have been cycles, but remember that the left has steadily gained ground. Is there a good reason to expect that to be different this time? (Oh, and no, Culture War 1.0 wasn't with the Baby Boomers.07/07/2015 - 3:59am
Goth_Skunk"THIS VIDEO IS PROBLEMATIC:" About Social Justice Warriors, by J.T. Sexkik. Excellent video. http://ow.ly/PgGnD07/07/2015 - 3:22am
Goth_Skunkand repeats the cycle, over and over. Presently, the far left culture is overreaching, and is about to lose their stranglehold on power.07/06/2015 - 10:01pm
Goth_SkunkAs far back as the 60's, according to the writers. The culture war moves in cycles from one generation to the next. The left rebels against the right, takes over, overreaches to the point where the right rebels right back, takes over, overreaches ->07/06/2015 - 9:58pm
MattsworknameGoth, what "Comming overreach" , the media and goverment have been overreaching for years07/06/2015 - 9:34pm
MattsworknameJim sterling is awesome ,dont always agree with him, but when it came to those guys, he was dead on. Thank god for jim.07/06/2015 - 9:33pm

Wymorencehttp://goo.gl/snN00H Okay, this is hysterical if you've followed the Digital Homicide Vs. Jim "Mother****ing" Sterling stuff. A podcast of the two groups talking it out with one being eviscerated07/06/2015 - 9:12pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.engadget.com/2015/07/06/kuratas-versus-megabot-robot-duel/ ok I want to see this. not gamming related but still cool. us giant robot vs Japanese giant robot.07/06/2015 - 8:39pm
Goth_SkunkFair point.07/06/2015 - 7:56pm
Andrew EisenNo argument there.07/06/2015 - 7:46pm
Matthew Wilsonwell it would benefit Reddit to fix that asap. when of of the work on the site is done for free, there is no reason not to give them 1 of the few things they are asking for (better communications).07/06/2015 - 7:45pm
Andrew EisenRight and THAT'S what she appears to be apologizing for.07/06/2015 - 7:39pm
Matthew Wilson@AE the thing is it wasnt the firing in of it self that people got upset about, its the lack of communication. this would not be a issue if admins would just communicate more with mods.07/06/2015 - 7:39pm
Andrew EisenI don't get the sense she's apologizing for firing one of their employees. For all we know, they could have a very good reason for letting her go. But yeah, hopefully Reddit's subsequent actions speak louder than Pao's words.07/06/2015 - 7:34pm
Goth_SkunkIf Pao is directly responsible for the termination of Reddit's AMA co-ordinator, then good for her for owning up to her mistake. If she wasn't, smart business sense to take the fall. It will all be in vain though if she can't earn back the trust she lost.07/06/2015 - 7:23pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://money.cnn.com/2015/07/06/technology/reddit-back-online-ellen-pao/index.html she kinda had no choice given what happened Friday.07/06/2015 - 6:48pm
Matthew Wilson@matt dont get me wrong, I think steam is a better platform, but it does need to improve in some areas07/06/2015 - 6:48pm
MattsworknameYes, but thats only cause its actual software systems are far worse thn steam07/06/2015 - 5:56pm
